People don't want to talk about it, but health-care rationing will start to occur," Babins said. "Most health-care dollars are spent at the end of one's life. Families say,'Do everything you can to maintain life.' Who's going to say that Grandma can't get that procedure?"

Naturally the critics were right.

The problem is 'low information voters' don't care.

No. I do remember the Erie times being 100% in favor of expanding mortgages for the poor. I bet Pat was enlightened then, too.

'Dumb' is wasting time reading anything by Pat Cuneo.

Always a left-winger, getting more radical by the column inch.

The ETN has supported the demise of Erie for half a century.

Typical libtard misdirection. Someone writes an article quoting some local health care professionals describing real reasons why Obamacare. They disagree and don't want to hear this point (more importantly, they don't want you to hear this point) so they change the discussion to one about the wrapper the news came in.

At a medical conference Dr. Marty Makary saw one of his Harvard professors who “looked out at a room of 2,000 doctors and asked ‘How many of you know of another doctor who should not be practicing because he is too dangerous?’ Every hand went up.” Yet few report bad doctors and those that do often get fired.

In fact, unlike repeat offending criminals who get caught, many doctors can keep making similar, even mortal, mistakes on different patients and get away with it.

Hospital staff knows they are practicing bad medicine and mostly do nothing. In Makary’s provocative book, Unaccountable, he describes one Ivy League-trained doctor who’s popular with patients yet dubbed Hodad, by his colleagues, for his continuing string of patient deaths. Hodad is their dark humored acronym for “hands of death and destruction.”

The doctors are afraid they won't be able to make the big $$$ anymore. Time to limit what the doctors and hospitals get paid and make health care affordable instead of a get rich business.
